Summer’s winding down. Your skin is not fond of what has happened the last few months. You’ve let sweat drip all over it inside the yoga studio and outside while walking to the parking lot. You’ve burnt it by the lake. You’ve burnt it by the pool. Fortunately, you get a chance to redeem yourself and earn forgiveness. This giveaway could help. I’ve got a box of five single-use masks, as part of Dr. Jart’s Pore Medic collection, that aim to tighten pores, reduce excess oil, and leave skin smooth and still hydrated. You’ll look like Michael from Halloween when you put it on, but you could come out looking like Karlie Kloss. Worth it. Enter to win the giveaway here.Full Story

Bésame Cosmetics is a secret treasure. I fell in love with the brand at Dallas Pin Up. It’s a line of vintage-inspired beauty products created by cosmetics historian Gabriela Hernandez. There’s an old Hollywood glamour feel to every product, which comes in a red- and gold-adorned packaged and is kept cozy in a red velvet bag. […]Full Story

Back in 2000, Maryann Mihalopoulos, a seasoned attorney turned part-time entrepreneur, converted her passion for ambrosial fragrances into a sweet side business she called Xela Aroma. The brand peddles a dreamy lineup of candles and diffusers, each made and manufactured with essential oils, right here in Dallas. This week, one lucky winner will be able to take home the Classic White Linen Candle. The serene blend of chamomile, patchouli, cyclamen, jasmine, violet and musk promises to soothe your senses; and if the aroma on its own doesn’t suffice, the candle’s lovely packaging and 14-ounce, gold-trimmed jar might do the trick.

I’m already a fan of Lavanilla, a brand that aims to make the fragrance experience a healthier one. Perfumes, if you are unaware, are full of chemicals. Lavanilla, on the other hand, focuses on essential oils and leaves out the mineral oils, synthetic dyes and fragrances, chemical sunscreens, aluminum, and sulfates. Typically, with perfumes on the natural end of the spectrum, I find they don’t last long without the powers of synthetic ingredients, but Lavanilla leaves a lingering sweetness that lasts all day. Everything the brand makes is vanilla-based (Vanilla Grapefruit, Vanilla Blackberry, etc). I wear the Pure Vanilla perfume almost daily and slather on the Vanilla Lavender body butter nightly. The limited-edition Vanilla Summer variation has me drooling. The list of the notes alone should sell you: tropical mango, juicy pineapple, creamy coconut milk, island sugar cane, and Madagascar vanilla. That’s a serious vacation elixir. I’ve got one to give away. Enter here to win.Full Story
